Sonalysts Animation Experts to Speak at Eastern

Written by Kevin Antonucci

Willimantic, Conn. - Jay Nilsen, vice president for animation at Sonalysts Corp. in Waterford and part-time professor of visual arts at Eastern Connecticut State University, and Steve Eichelberg, senior software engineer at Sonalysts, will lead a discussion at Eastern on careers in gaming, modeling and simulating on Oct. 27. The informational session will begin at 5 p.m. in Room 139 of Eastern's new Science Building. The public is invited. Admission is free.

The presentation is targeted at students taking Eastern's new game design minor, established in fall 2008. The goal of the game design minor is to teach students the computational needs, problem-solving skills and business related teamwork needed to design video games. The minor includes classes in music, art and computer science. 

"We traditionally ask leaders from industry, education and society to speak to our students," said Gary Rommel, professor of math and computer science at Eastern. "This has lead to our students obtaining excellent employment opportunities in the region."

Sonalysts is well-known for its first-class technical capabilities and communication expertise that provide solutions to a wide variety of complex challenges facing the government, corporate and entertainment industries.

The Sonalysts presentation is sponsored by Eastern's Office of Career Services. For more information regarding the informational session, contact Nancy DeCrescenzo, director of career services, at or call (860) 465-0306. For additional information about Sonalysts visit
